ABSTRACT

Students’ study habit has strong relationship with academic achievement. Present study was aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Study Habit Questionnaire for university students of Bangladesh in response to scarcity of such psychometric tools on target population. The Bangla version of the questionnaire was administered on a multistage sample of 150 students of the University of Chittagong in Bangladesh following the guidelines of the International Test Commission (ITC). Psychometric properties of the measure were estimated by item analysis, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), internal consistency reliabilities, and the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient. The item-total correlations, factor loadings in EFA, Cronbach’s Alpha, split half reliability through the Spearman-Brown formula and the significant relationship between study habits and academic achievement suggested that the Bangla version of the Study Habits Questionnaire was a psychometrically sound measure and suitable for Bangladeshi university students.
